Sophomore Year, Part 3

Sophomore Year, Part 3

I’m wrapping up my Sophomore year for you today.

I last left you at…“And then I met a boy.”

Circling back to the post that started this all, My Inner Nerd, I have to explain something quickly.  Being a nerd, I was in advanced math at my old high school.  When I moved to CHS, I learned that they did math “differently”, meaning that you didn’t follow the normal plan of Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Algebra, Trigonometry, and then Calculus.  No, CHS had Math 9, Math 10, Math 11, and Calculus.  It was “integrated math” where you got a little bit of everything each year, without labels.  It was weird.

So being the nerd that I am was, when I started at CHS, it was determined that taking Math 10 would be too easy for me, so I was lumped into the last section of Advanced Algebra (the integrated math program was new to my class, so those older than me were still in “normal” math classes) with a bunch of juniors.

Advanced Algebra was easy for me.  I’ve always found algebra to be easy (nerd).  It was soon apparent that I was perhaps the best in the class and I got a lot of attention for it.  Mostly from the boys that didn’t really care to learn and knew that I would help them.  There were two boys in particular…John and Don.  I’m using their real names because I see no reason not to use them.

John and Don were friends.  They played Varsity baseball, while I was playing JV softball.  Advanced Algebra let us get to know each other a little more.  Don was the semi-trouble maker, cute guy with huge dimples.  He wore tight Levi’s and sometimes a cowboy hat.  He was CUTE.  And a total flirt.  I instantly fell for Don.  I loved to flirt with him…and I sure he enjoyed it too.

John was more of your “boy next door” type.  Cute, but nothing to write home about.  He and I talked a lot, and he flirted with me, but I had my sights set on Don.

Until John called me one night and asked me out on a date.  Wait, what??  John?? No, no, no.  It’s not supposed to be John!!  In typical bitchy high school fashion, I turned him down.

Two weeks later, he asked me out again.  This time, I seriously had something going on, so it was easy to tell him no.  But we began talking a little more, and I realized that as long as John liked me, I had zero chance with Don.  Plus, Don was the bad boy…and he would never date me, little goody two-shoes.  More likely, he would use me and throw me to the curb.

So the next time John called and asked me out (persistent little punk, huh?) I said yes.  We made a plan to do something that coming Saturday, after my double-header softball game.  John came and watched my game, and then gave me time to go home and get cleaned up before coming over.

This was my first “real” date.  I was very excited…and nervous.  My parents didn’t help things when they all of a sudden told me they were leaving the house and to have a good time.  WHAT?!?! My parents were leaving me at the house with this guy?  How messed up is that?  I guess I should have looked at it as a good thing, that they really trusted me.  But at the time, I was just so confused and nervous…it just added pressure.

I don’t even remember what we did on that first date.  I’m sure we went to dinner and then bowling or to a movie or something.  And like my first ever real kiss, I don’t remember all the details, but I do remember that John wasn’t that great of a kisser.  I remember slobber and teeth.  What is with my luck??  That’s okay though…there was enough attraction there for me to overlook it.

John and I started spending more time together, and before we knew it, we were a couple.  We were the school’s newest couple, so it was kind of a big deal.  While many of the upper class men had no idea who I was up until that point, they soon learned.

While all of this young romance was going on, good things were also happening in softball.  During a tournament, the Varsity coach happened to come to watch, and he liked how I played.  I was pulled up to Varsity for the tournament season (districts, regionals, etc.).  I was mainly used as a “pinch runner” for our pitcher.  That means that after she got a hit and got on base, I would go and run the bases for her.  Our pitcher was excellent and we couldn’t risk her getting hurt, plus she was slower and I was really quick.  While I didn’t really “play”, I was content running bases since it meant that I was part of the Varsity team.


Picture of me in my “Varsity” uniform before my first game as a Varsity player

Once I was “accepted” by the other teammates, and got to know some of the Varsity boys (the two teams traveled together), I started to learn some interesting information about John.  Stuff I was willing, at the time, to ignore.

End Sophomore Year, Part 3.  The next in my high school series, Junior Year, will be posted on Tuesday, October 19.

This post is linked with Rachel and Mr. Daddy’s True Story Tuesday meme, over at Once Upon a Miracle.  Please head over there for some more great stories!

Were your team colors Blue and Maize? (can’t tell if it’s blue or black)
If so, you look good in Blue and Maize :D


2 Kmama October 12, 2010 at 8:03 am

It’s actually purple and gold. Gotta love those Scottish colors!


3 Ian October 12, 2010 at 8:21 am

Couple of things. Cowboy hat cracks me up, guess I’m sheltered like that. I dig the whole young dating thing from the girl’s point of view. Interests me. And if you think you are getting off the hook about things you were willing to ignore about John, forget it pal. Spill.


4 kmama October 12, 2010 at 10:01 am

You have to remember, we moved from the city to the country. Cowboy hats were pretty common…as well as cowboy boots.

More will come out about John. Be patient!!


5 Evonne October 12, 2010 at 9:48 am

I was a math nerd, too. I loved Algebra!

I want to know what you chose to ignore about John, too!


6 kmama October 12, 2010 at 10:02 am

I promise there will be more about John. I have posted about him before, quite awhile ago. Our eventual break-up was not the stuff dreams are made of.


7 Kelly October 12, 2010 at 11:24 am

hmmmm…what would you ignore about John??? I can’t wait to hear more!

Enjoyed the story!


8 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:29 pm

John was an interesting character. That’s for sure.


9 purseblogger October 12, 2010 at 11:35 am

Nooo! I want to hear what you learned about John before next Tues. *sigh* I am so not patient. I am really loving this story.


10 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Sorry. I love to string you along. Just kidding! I can’t fit everything into one post…it would be like a book if I did.


11 Jennifer October 12, 2010 at 11:43 am

You just can’t help but leave us hanging.


12 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:30 pm

I know. Isn’t it great? Hahaha. Just kidding. If I could find time to write it all out at once, and could trust that everyone would keep reading a super long book-sized post, I would do it.


13 Snuggle Wasteland October 12, 2010 at 11:46 am

I’ll be back to find out about John….Loving this series!


14 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:31 pm

Thanks! Glad you’re enjoying it. Ian convinced me yesterday to continue on with my college years after I finish up this series.


15 Jennifer October 12, 2010 at 11:50 am

OMG . . . I am so ready for the next part of the story!! What happens next???


16 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:31 pm

Tune in next week, for Junior Year, Part 1. Hee hee!


17 Scraps October 12, 2010 at 11:54 am

I always loved algebra, too–still get a little thrill when I get to do the equation, each fall, to figure out a salesman draw large enough to cover taxes, insurance and 401k.

Let me guess? It’s always the quiet ones, the boy next door, you gotta worry about?

(btw–did you know your new feed is only doing excerpts, not the full post?)


18 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:32 pm

John just wasn’t as pure as everyone though. Even me.

I do know that my feeds are only doing partial…I’m trying to fix it. My blog is set up correctly, but it must be something with feedburner. The problem is that the guy who did my conversion didn’t send me the login info for my feedburner account. Sorry!


19 Scraps October 12, 2010 at 3:54 pm

No need to apologize! Stuff happens in moves and I know not everyone subscribes to their own feeds.


20 sara@domesticallychallenged October 12, 2010 at 12:55 pm

Stuff you were willing to ignore? This could get interesting…


21 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:33 pm

Nothing extremely interesting. Just that John wasn’t such a nice guy after all.


22 Michelle Pixie October 12, 2010 at 2:46 pm

I too am very curious about the stuff you were willing to ignore! And really was any boy a good kisser in HS? They definitely need a little training to cool their jets. ;-)


23 Nicole October 12, 2010 at 3:07 pm

my husband was a good kisser in high school!
His kisses are exactly the same. :)


24 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:34 pm

I didn’t realize you and your hubby were high school sweethearts!!


25 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:34 pm

My serious boyfriend in high school was a good kisser, but I think he was an anomaly. Because my first two kissing experiences were so terrible, I didn’t think kissing could be better! LOL


26 Emily October 12, 2010 at 2:51 pm

And I thought your relationship with John was going to be boring…but it sounds like it’s getting juicy! I kind of feel like I’m watching an episode of 90210! :)


27 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:35 pm

Ha! I love that you compared my boring, geeky life to 90210!!


28 Nicole October 12, 2010 at 3:07 pm

Give it UP you TEASE!!!


29 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:36 pm

I know, I know. But none of you would ever read one super long post about all of my years of high school. And I have to end it at good parts to keep you coming back!


30 Emmy October 12, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Okay once again you left us hanging! Can’t wait to find out what stuff you ignored.


31 kmama October 12, 2010 at 3:49 pm

I feel like perhaps, everyone is reading into what I ignored. I hope I don’t disappoint next week!!


32 Rachel October 12, 2010 at 7:04 pm

I was an algebra nerd to. And played a bit of softball (lots of pinch running too!)

So what were those icky things about John??? (Jaws themesong)


33 kmama October 12, 2010 at 8:30 pm

The icky John things are yet to come. I think I can wrap him up next week. I hope at least.


34 Shell October 12, 2010 at 8:49 pm

Why do we always ignore when people tell us things about someone? We only hear what we want.


35 kmama October 13, 2010 at 8:41 pm

I can’t speak for others, but I’m stubborn and have to learn for myself. It’s a curse.


36 He & me + 3 October 12, 2010 at 10:28 pm

Going to have to go back and read the other parts. Your uniforms reminded me of my high school uniforms. I played varsity softball too. OH my what did you ignore?


37 kmama October 13, 2010 at 8:42 pm

Yes, do go back (well, only if you feel like it). I had expected to only do one story per year of school, but it’s taking a lot longer to get through it all. My junior year was quite interesting too.


38 HeatherOz October 13, 2010 at 3:34 pm

oooohhhh! Can’t wait til next week! John!!
I had Geometry my sophmore year and the teacher made fun of me because I was the best in the class AND I had blonde hair! I was mortified with all the Juniors in the class!


39 kmama October 13, 2010 at 8:42 pm

That was so not fair of that teacher to do that to you. What a jerk!! I had Geometry in 9th grade…but I was a year ahead.


40 natalee October 13, 2010 at 7:11 pm

AHHHH! I want to hear more… I love the uniform !!!!!


41 kmama October 13, 2010 at 8:43 pm

There will be more. My junior year was a bit interesting. ;-)


42 Megan October 14, 2010 at 12:52 am

Oooooooooh, now I am INTRIGUED. What was up with John? What was his secret? I am imagining all sorts of nefarious things! You must spill, and soon!


43 Kmama October 14, 2010 at 9:03 pm

I will get into John some more next week. It’s nothing earth shattering, he was just a sleaze.


44 Foursons October 14, 2010 at 2:51 pm

No way, you’re not telling us about his reputation? *sigh* Hopefully this relationship goes into your junior year.


45 Kmama October 14, 2010 at 9:04 pm

I will definitely continue with the John story. It probably isn’t as interesting as everyone seems to think it will be.


46 Steph October 15, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Enjoying your trip down memory lane…its bringing me along too…I totally remember you coming to CHS…didn’t realize that you dated John…I do remember you coming and sitting next to me in band though! You and renee were a good addition to the ‘front row’ that year :)


47 Kmama October 15, 2010 at 4:23 pm

Hey you! Glad you’re enjoying the trip down memory lane!! Ahh, the good old days at CHS! This is a standing Tuesday theme for me. I have at least a few weeks, if not four or more left of my CHS story!

John and I dated for about 4 months. 4 months too long. Ha!


48 BK October 16, 2010 at 4:06 pm

Humph. Cliff hangers aren’t any fun! I’m a junior this year, dating a guy in a cowboy hat, so is this a warning or somthing?! LOL
